Well, where are all the detractors at?
Funny, when you publish facts, no comments from the mis-guided people,is there?
as a lawyer once stated its extremely difficult to defend a guilty client. Once at a construction site some black teens had stolen stuff and Vandalized stuff. It was a ongoing problem there was one black guy on the job . at lunch one day all the white guys where really down on the blacks telling all the negative things ect. when they finally wore out the subject the black guy spoke up. He stated yep all those things you all are saying is true. What makes me angry is you all makes me live down there with them. If given the opportunity there are very few blacks who wouldnt jump at the chance to be white. and hardly any white wants to be black.

Racism in the food system... it's not about racism so much any more. It's about whomever they can exploit.
Ag production in 3rd world countries they love, nice and cheap, or they can just use illegal Mexicans here, keeping their wages lower due to the artificially contrived immigration status.
And the USA populace dumbly acts like all those illegal workers are some kind of invasion, like it's their fault, like the whole thing wasn't designed.
Family farms are disappearing in the USA and Mexico both, so what does that tell us? Wake up fools.
This is interesting. Can you suggest any articles or websites where I can learn more?
